VLC media player comes preinstalled in Debian 8 ‘jessie’ Xfce edition. I thought why not try Xfce project’s media player, parole?
I installed parole, but couldn’t run it: neither using GUI icon, nor from the terminal. I got the fix afterwards. I just installed gstreamer0.10-plugins-good package and it solved the problem.
apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
Parole now plays!
